Movement Detroit cancels 2021 installment, sets tone for future May events
The ongoing pandemic is continuing to rear its head on the United States population with several new strains. In the process, the return of live music is being pushed back further as large-scale music gatherings are in no shape to host fans safely. Following rumored cancellations for Glastonbury, Ultra, and Coachella in 2021, Movement Detroit is the newest springtime festival to have the face the music. After initially postponing to May 29 – 31, 2021, Movement organizers have officially called off this year’s edition. They cited state regulations as the main reason for their decision.
“We have been looking forward to reuniting with all of you on Memorial Day weekend, but the ongoing pandemic and state regulations have led us to the painful realization that our beloved Movement Festival will not happen in May 2021.”
Artists booked to play the May edition of Movement Detroit 2021 included Seth Troxler, MK, ANNA, Carl Craig, and TESTPILOT. No other information has been given as to whether they’ll return to “Techno City” next year. Movement Detroit has promised more information on “future dates and ticketing options” to come in March.
While festival cancellations may seem to be a harbinger for the return to live, fans can expect live shows to be pushed past May and well beyond summer. Despite the painful reality, these cancellations fall right in line with past predictions from the National Institute of Health’s Dr. Fauci as well as live music conglomerates like Live Nation.
